Anyone out there like those colorful plastic little pieces that fit together to form all kinds of cool creations and can keep kids and adults alike busy for hours? Yeah, I thought some of you might…
So, you’ll be excited to learn that BrickFair is returning to the DC area again this year for another weekend of LEGO mania! The nation’s largest LEGO fan festival will take place August 3-4 at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va.
BrickFair brings together LEGO enthusiasts from across the country to share their passion for the toy by showcasing their amazing brick constructions, from tiny intricate works to elaborate, towering creations. Over 1,000 exhibitors will be there to display their designs, along with vendors selling all things LEGOS — T-shirts, hats, mini figures, models, and more.
And it’s not all just looking and buying. Visitors can get hands-on in the Stay & Play Area chock full of bricks for guests to exercise their LEGO artistry. There are also a few exhibitor models that are interactive — they are clearly marked, and the owner will be happy to assist and show off their talent.
This will all take place from 11am – 4pm both Saturday, August 3, and Sunday, August 4. Tickets are $12/day, free for ages 3 and under.
Giveaway: I have two 4-packs of tickets up for grabs for two lucky winners (that’s one 4-pack each). For a chance to win a set, simply leave a comment below telling me your family’s favorite activity so far this summer. To be eligible, you must “like” KidFriendly DC on Facebook and you can get an extra entry by following KFDC on Twitter. The giveaway will run though next Friday, July 19. Good luck!
